Congratulations to Instagrammer @neosharama, who took this amazing photo of crown jellies at the Aquarium. She’s the winner of our recent “Share Your Love of Jellies” contest!
Made plans yet? We just put beautiful crown jellies on exhibit for this weekend’s Jellyfish Jamboree. Enjoy special presentations, groove to live music and learn how we raise one of the ocean’s most mysterious invertebrates. Included with admission.
How early can you create a passion for our oceans? Let’s just say this is worth a try! (TōNFACE Designs photo)
Have you seen our spotted jellies? People tell us they can’t get enough of them—and neither can our staff photographer, Randy Wilder. We love this new image!
Do you love jellies and our special exhibition, “The Jellies Experience”? Want to know what it’s like to work with jellies and raise them in our “jellies laboratory”? Hangout with our experts live Dec. 5 at noon PT! We have spots available on camera. You can also submit your questions if you want them asked on air!
Checked out our comb jellies? These beautiful, oval-shaped animals have eight rows of tiny comblike plates that diffract light to produce a shimmering, rainbow effect.

Visited “The Jellies Experience” lately? Check out this great shot of an Indonesian jelly (Chrysaora chinensis)!
What if you could live forever? This jelly can (at least theoretically). The immortal jelly (Turritopsis sp.) has the unique ability to go from a polyp, to a mature medusa, and back to a polyp again. We exhibited this experimental species last fall in “The Jellies Experience”!
Need another reason to attend our Jellyfish Jamboree Oct. 13-14? Our stunning crown jellies (Cephea cephea) are at their biggest size ever: six inches! These jellies were a first for any aquarium worldwide when we added them in June, and you can see them at this weekend’s event.
Here are more great shots from our “Jellies Experience" flashmob last weekend, which went down the Embarcadero in San Francisco to the Giants game. Thanks to those who joined in!
